Some vehicles may exhibit a “buzzing”, “groaning” and/or “rattling” noise from the rear of the vehicle.
This should move the exhaust enough to reduce the possibility of the pipe contacting the control arm.
- Inspect the exhaust pipe and rear lower control arm for signs of contact.
- If contact is evident, loosen the exhaust U-clamp located rearward of the catalyst.
- Grind off the exhaust pipe alignment tab using a grinder. The tab is located in front of the U-clamp and is only used as an alignment assembly aid.
- Twist the exhaust pipe to increase clearance between pipe and lower control arm.
- Tighten U-clamp.
